Description Sizing Shipping Information
 

A Rudis was a gift to a gladiator for a special achievement. This signified his release from a slave to a freeman. Our Rudis is an excellent and unique give for someone who has completed service in the military, retired, or completed an academic achievement.

Made in the USA, This is our upgrade rudis. Historically they had an ivory handle. We don't do ivory, but we left the handle with a finished white wooden handle for a beautiful contrast. The handle is not octagon for a very historic look.

We can engrave a corporate logo, military insignia, and/or text in a variety of fonts. Email instructions to: rudis.sword.proof@gmail.com and include order number.

The perfect gift August 15, 2017
Reviewer: AE from 'Merica  
My husband and I bought this as a retirement gift for a dear friend.  It is unique and high quality, and the engraving personalizes it to whatever extent you want.  We bought the Victoria style and put our friend's name, rank, regimental crest, branch insignia, and dates of service on the front, and a personal message from us on the back.  Really pleased with the look, feel, and weight of this product and we know the recipient is going to love it, especially as I will tie her warrior spirit to the meaning of the rudis.  Excellent product that we highly recommend!

Rudis Retirement Gifts March 20, 2017
Reviewer: LtCol G. Troy Roesti from HQMC Pentagon  
Purple Heart Armory has provided exceptional service on each and every Rudis ordered for my Marine unit.  The staff quickly responds to email orders by turning out a detailed proof of each Rudis order prior to production.  Once approved, they manufacture a high quality piece in a timely manner.  These gifts have been well received and are a fitting recognition of a warrior's service to his or her country.
